Steve A...one of the winningest crew chiefs the last couple years is out? Surprised. Unless memory is failing me...bad finishes were mainly due to accidents on the track...not a crew chief issue. Maybe he'll go over and be Kurt's new crew chief:eek:mfg: just a tad of sarcasm....Steve's too smart for that.

Yeah, I'm still in a little bit of shock over this news. And I'm not confident in his replacement.

There's no doubt that some of the bad stuff that happened was Kyle's fault. However, there were times when the car came off the truck terrible and they couldn't get the car right during the race. That stuff gets old.

And I do agree that you have to change something to catch the 48...I just don't know if they made the right change. But just like Jeff Fisher of the Titans, he won't be out of a job long.

Sounds like Jack Roush syndrome. "You finished 5th last week and won the previous race, YOUR FIRED!!!"

I would never want to work for Roush.

You're firing the crew chief that put up that legendary season last year in terms of wins?:scratch:

Kyle hasn't been winning this year as much, but I blame that on the driver, Hendrick, and poor performance across the board at Gibbs.

Canada Eh!
I was dissappointed in the decision. This year wasn't all steve's fault. There was a lot of bad luck involved

Bye Steve. I really hate to see you go but...it is what it is. You'll be working again in no time though. It was a good run.

I didn't know he had left gibbs. I guess it WOULD be hard to stay after everything.
